A Weekend in the White Mountains - Part 2

It's going to be another beautiful weekend here at the Indian Head Resort!

If you're preparing to get away this weekend or if you're planning a trip in the future, A Weekend in the White Mountains - Part 2 is here to take the stress off your shoulders. Follow this guide to enjoy this week's featured activities and to make the most of your weekend in the White Mountains!


Play Some Tennis

After a long drive up to the North Country, get your legs moving with some tennis.

Grab your friends and family to play a round of singles, doubles or my personal favorite, just try to hit the ball.

Even if you've never played before, you'll have fun trying something new. And who knows, you might have a hidden talent.

If you play a few rounds and realize you don't have a hidden talent, take a lesson with our local tennis pro, Hayden.

Hayden has been playing and teaching tennis for most of his life. He'll show you ways to improve your game and make you an overall better player.

Give him a call a few days in advance to book your lesson!


Spend the Day at Whale's Tale Waterpark

Advanced reservation required, purchase tickets here.

2 Minute drive from Indian Head Resort

One of my favorite things to do in the summer as a kid (and as an adult) was go to Whale's Tale Waterpark.

Whale's Tale is home to state of the art, industry leading rides for all ages. With seven slides, two pools, two kid's areas, a lazy river, a surf simulator, two restaurants, a bar, and a gift shop, it's not hard to see why Whale's Tale is considered New England's favorite waterpark.

Located a quick two minute drive down the road, the park is open from 10 am - 5 pm daily, and I would suggest getting there right at 10 am to really take advantage of the full day. You might think you won't need 7 hours here, but time flies when you're having fun!


Hike the Indian Head Profile

Trail located behind the West Village Cottages and/or at the Flume

2 - 3 hours roundtrip

If you and your party are feeling ambitious, wrap up your weekend with a hike up the Indian Head Profile.

The trail starts off with a gradual incline as you follow a small river and eventually turns steep right before you reach the summit. Although there are some tricky parts, the trail is not super hard, so if you're looking for a nice balance of ease and challenge, the Indian Head Profile is for you.

Plus, if you're staying in one of our West Village Cottages, you can just walk right outside and jump on the trail! You may need to do a very small amount of trailblazing, but that just adds to the fun.

If you're looking to take your weekend in a different direction, check out A Weekend in the White Mountains - Part 1 for more attractions you can't miss.

With so much to do in the area, it's hard to fit everything into one weekend. I'll be back next week with another guide featuring activities you can't miss on your next trip to the Indian Head Resort and the beautiful White Mountains!
